Children do as we do.
Every day we set an example for them in how they should behave, what they eat, if they exercise, etc.
We ARE Role Models; even if the children aren’t our own….nephews, nieces, even the neighbor’s kids. Think about your actions and who is watching.
I’ve been working really hard on being a good role model for my children. They are both unique and have their own personalities and ways of doing things. I’m seeing more and more how much I influence them by the choices that they are making and the things that are becoming involved in. They are in turn, sharing this information with friends.
An example, my youngest daughter is showing friends how to make a fruit salad using apples, watermelon, grapes and cantalope. Instead of choosing a less than healthy snack, she is making the decision to eat healthier. I am so proud of her as well as my oldest daughter.
What are some ways that you are a positive role model?
